It is expected that as a minimum people should be dressed in clean and tidy smart-casual clothing, except on more formal occasions.
On the Golf Course
Golf attire should be neat, tailored and consistent with the standards of the Club and recognised as appropriate to the traditions of the game of golf. The Pro Shop is well stocked with suitable clothing and any inadvertent errors may be quickly and easily corrected.
Shirts must have collars or turtle necks or be specifically designed for golf. Shirts and shorts designed for other sports - e.g. football, rugby, or with numbers, are not acceptable. Shirts should be tucked into trousers, shorts or skirts unless specifically designed to be worn outside.
Trousers and shorts should be tailored and in good repair.
Blue denim or distressed clothing will not be regarded as acceptable nor will camouflage colours. Golf caps and visors must be worn with the cap peak forward
Players must wear recognised golf shoes preferably with soft spikes. Caddies and spectators may wear training shoes but otherwise they will be expected to abide by the Golf Course Dress Code.
In the Clubhouse
We prefer not to have specific rules for the Clubhouse other than saying that clean and tidy smart-casual clothing is expected. The 1887 Bar is the more relaxed area and there is no need to change. We like to keep the Sir Henry Cotton Lounge Bar and Dining area a bit smarter and many members wear a jacket when dining.
The following may help as a guide to the atmosphere that we like to keep:
Clothing which is acceptable on the Golf Course is also acceptable in the Clubhouse
Sports headwear must be removed when in the Clubhouse - this excludes the patio area, Pro Shop and whilst moving to and from the locker rooms
Jeans and denim may be worn, provided they are in good repair, no rips, tears, frayed ends or holes, and must fit and be worn appropriately.
Shoes - The carpets in the main entrance lobby and 1887 Bar are able to withstand spikeless golf shoes and golf shoes with soft spikes and these are permissible on a short term basis in those areas always provided that shoes are clean. When ground conditions are adverse, access to the 1887 Bar whilst wearing golf shoes will be prohibited and this will be indicated by a notice posted on the bar’s external door. We do ask that you wear more suitable footwear if you are intending to spend time in the Clubhouse before or after your game.
Mobile Phones and other Wireless Communication Devices (WCD’s)
We recognise that in today’s environment wireless communication devices are necessary to both personal and business lives. WCD’s must be set in silent mode and any use of WCD’s must not detract from other members and guests enjoyment of the Golf Course and Clubhouse
Do consider others when making audible use of mobile phones and wireless devices and, except in serious emergencies, please restrict such use to the car park area only.
The Club Management, Steward or Staff on duty have the right to bring to the attention of any member or visitor the fact that their dress may not be in keeping with the requirements of the Club Rules.
